Three Premier League predictions for Transfer Deadline Day

The transfer window is finally reaching its climax, and many teams will be delighted that they have managed to strengthen their sides where required and will be looking ahead to the rest of the season.

However, there will be a number of sides with work still to do in the transfer market before the 6pm deadline on Tuesday, and panic will be starting to set in.

Deadline Day has a reputation for throwing a few surprises our way. In the past we have seen shocks like the Tevez/Mascherano double move to West Ham in 2006 and Radamel Falcao to Manchester United last summer.

With many of the top sides like Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham all looking for improvements, we can expect an entertaining final day.

Here are four predictions for Tuesday’s deadline day….

Man United’s surprise signing…

Van Gaal
There has been no secret that Louis Van Gaal is not happy with his current squad and wants to add a marquee transfer before the window closes.

Throughout the summer there have been a variety of top players linked with the move including the likes of Gareth Bale, Pedro, Thomas Muller and most recentl, Neymar.

United will no doubt be working until the deadline in a bid to secure a big name to take them to the next level.

Unfortunately for Van Gaal’s side it doesn’t appear that their persistence will pay off and it could result in a late panic buy.

Players like Saido Berahino and Charlie Austin have been sought after by a number of sides this window and there is a good chance the Red Devils could join the hunt in a moment of desperation.

Wenger infuriates the Arsenal fans

Arsene Wenger has always been a man who keeps his cards close to his chest regarding transfers. Whilst he won’t admit it, he is clearly unhappy with the depth in his squad and will be looking to make another late swoop in the transfer market.

Previous deadline days have seen the likes of Andrey Arshavin, Mikel Arteta and Mesut Ozil complete late moves to north London.

However, this year Arsenal fans should not get their hopes up. It appears highly unlikely that the French manager will make any late swoops despite repeated calls from a number of fans and ex-players.

Instead you can expect Wenger to come out with some daft statement explaining how he wanted to buy a new striker, but then realised he had Danny Welbeck returning from injury, which is like a whole new signing.

Jose sends another handful of players out on loan


During his time at Chelsea Jose Mourinho has developed a habit of stockpiling a mass of young talented footballers, before farming them all out on loan deals across Europe.

Already this season the Blues have an incredible 26 players on temporary deals, including the likes of Juan Cuadrado, Patrick Bamford and Marko Marin.

You would be mad to rule out more short term departures.

Jose is known for his lack of rotation. He has his preferred choices and rarely breaks away from that pattern. Luckily for the back up members of his squad, he is open to them gaining experience elsewhere.

Expect the likes of Victor Moses, Kenedy and Loftus-Cheek to join the top of the pile on Tuesday.
